BlackBerry "Jakarta" and other Foxconn produced BlackBerry models, will debut at MWC
While Gou didn't mention the exact number of phones that will be revealed next month, one of them could be the BlackBerry Jakarta. This is believed to be one of the new entry-level models that is expected to be heading straight to Indonesia. Despite CEO John Chen's insistance that the majority of the new BlackBerry models will feature a physical QWERTY, the Jakarta is an all-touch handset.
The beleaguered manufacturer is getting a great partner in Foxconn, according to Gou. While he did praise the BlackBerry 10 platform for its strength in security, he said that the company is lacking in its manufacturing capabilities, something that Foxconn can help them with, according to the executive.
Besides Indonesia, Mexico is one of the countries expected to receive the new BlackBerry phones, according to a statement released by Foxconn. In addition to the current 5 year deal, Foxconn says that the two will combine on investments and global marketing.

Jakarta is the code name for the phone.
Indonesia is the target launch point for the phone.
Barcelona is where things will be revealed.
Seems straightforward to me.

jakarta were the choosen code for b z3 because it represent BIG SCREEN, LOW SPEC. In bb mind, jakarta user were cheap user. so, don't be so proud just because bb use jakarta as the code.
